    AMES, Iowa (AP) Police say a 19-year-old Iowa State University student who was struck by a train in April had been intoxicated.

    Ames Police Department Cmdr. Mike Brennan says toxicology tests show Raven Gileau's blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.

    Her body was found around 5:30 a.m. on April 25 near railroad tracks in Ames.

    Her death certificate states she died of multiple blunt force injuries after being struck by a train. She was an architecture student from Woodbridge, Va.

    Brennan says evidence suggests her death was accidental, but the case will be sent to the Story County Attorney?s Office for consideration of possible criminal charges.
